Wow!!!  VERY cool!!  Sometime later this year (or perhaps next year) I plan to do some serious reconciliation of agent data for our own institution as well as for broader datasets, so you'll definitely be hearing from me on this space!  Nice work!

I left a feedback suggestion, but didn't have the time to read the Open Source Guide to make sure I did it appropriately.  I'll start claiming some more!
